Bike for 11 yr old girl

My daughter has just outgrown her Islabike 26 Large. She loved it.

I'm looking at moving her on to an adult bike as she is quite tall.

We test rode one of these yesterday in medium and it seemed to be a good fit. https://www.evanscycles.com/pinnacle-li ... e-EV275572

Unfortunately they have no stock for the red so need to be patient.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience of this bike or if there is an alternative I should consider. I've always felt Evans was quite expensive but I've no idea about their own branded bikes.

She will be using it in the park, road use and a little trail.

    Looks like a reasonable buy............

    Hate to advise this but the Halfords Carrera Cross Fire is a good deal IMO especially with 10% BC discount. Just got one for the wife and cost £225

    Hmm, Crossfire has suspension which she may not need, is quite a bit heavier and most importantly doesn't seem to come in red............
